Vincent C. Sallan

Senior Attorney
fax +1 313.965.8252

Vincent Sallan litigates discrimination, wrongful discharge, retaliation, harassment, trade secret, non-compete/non-solicitation, and commissions disputes. When he isn’t litigating, he assists employers with a host of day-to-day issues, including drafting and revising handbooks, policies, and agreements.

Vince’s practice includes employment counseling and litigation and complex commercial litigation. He regularly advises and counsels employers on an array of employment issues, including drafting and revising handbooks and policies in addition to employment and non-compete agreements, consulting on terminations and separations, conducting internal investigations, advising on employment issues arising during transactions, and ensuring employers follow state and Federal employment statutes. Vince also defends employers against False Claims Act, discrimination, wrongful discharge, retaliation, harassment, whistleblower, family/medical leave, disability, and wage-and-hour claims before state and Federal courts, arbitrators, and administrative agencies.

In addition to employment counseling and litigation, Vince focuses his practice on prosecuting and defending unfair competition, trade-secret, non-compete/non-solicit, business tort, and sales commissions claims, among other complex commercial litigation. Vince has significant experience across numerous industries, including healthcare, telecommunications, real estate, and insurance. Vince frequently drafts and argues critical dispositive motions and motions in limine, which have significantly limited claims and damages leading to favorable resolutions for clients.

Vince also maintains a political law practice, where he litigates and advises on issues involving campaign finance, ballot access, recounts, recalls, ballot initiatives, and other election law issues.

Coming from a family of small business owners, Vince knows first-hand how disruptive a legal dispute can be to business operations. No matter the case or industry, Vince works closely with his clients to understand their business so he can develop and implement a strategy designed to protect their interests and achieve their business goals.

Prior to joining Clark Hill, Vince gained valuable experience at a nationally recognized boutique litigation firm in metro-Detroit, where he focused his practice on litigating employment, commercial, and insurance coverage disputes.
